Champagne Tags Album & Display Cases
Mementos from a tour of Champagne and Provonce, or a passion for collecting champagne capsules. Known as "placomusophilie", a French word that comes from "muselet" (pronounce mew-zeh-lay), the system invented by Adolphe Jacqueson in 1844. The muselet is the wire cage that secures the cork. The capsule is the metallic rounded part of the system. It protects the top of the cork and makes a wonderful item to collect. Some champagne bottles are produced with extremely sophisticated and limited edition capsules.
